Escapism is the word of the week as I could definitely use some distractions from the world, and I have them in spades.
Tom King is adding to his library of DC Comics titles with a new 8-issue miniseries focused on the Man of Steel’s cousin. Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow takes the Maid of Might on a mission to help another alien whose world has been destroyed. The end of the solicitation copy reads, “Now a Kryptonian, a dog, and an angry, heartbroken child head out into space on a journey that will shake them to their very core.” Throw in a generous helping of flashbacks and it sounds like a very TOM KING-esque series.
Also debuting this week is the first series in the return of the MILESTONE universe with Static: Season One. While the new stories taking place in Dakota are available for purchase at Comixology, much like last week’s THE JOKER PRESENTS: A PUZZLE BOX, the issue is also free to read for members of the DC Universe Infinite online comics library.
As always, I’m buying my comics digitally, through Comixology. Most of the week’s new books are listed over at the PreviewsWorld website, though DC Comics’ new releases can be found on their own website. Let’s take a look at what new comics I’ll be reading this week.
The Flash 771
Static Season One 1
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow 1
Superman Red and Blue 4
DC Digital Comics
Infinite Frontier Secret Files 1
Besides the comics, I have a lot of other stuff to distract me from the real world for a little while. We’ll have reviews of the latest episodes of LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and SUPERMAN AND LOIS coming up soon. And ProjectBlue will be back with the second episode of the new Disney+ Marvel series, LOKI. Lots of time traveling this Geek Week.
Tomorrow, we’ll flash back to one of the most maligned movies about DC Comics characters as we celebrate(?) the 10th anniversary of the release of Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern movie. On Sunday, WWE on Peacock returns with its latest Pea-Per-View, HELL IN A CELL, featuring Roman Reigns defending the Universal Championship in the cell against Rey Mysterio.
That feels like a pretty bad mismatch.
And, of course, Joe will be back this weekend with his latest selection for SONG OF THE WEEK.
What are you looking forward to this Geek Week? Let us know in the comments!
